I've never been a big fan of the SSK. I feel like the top stitch always looks sloppy and it's not a very good mirror image of the K2tog. I really wanted decreases that would nicely mirror each other for my Tiny Dancer pattern, so I did a little digging. I was thrilled to find a brilliant left-leaning decrease that is a much, much closer mirror image of the K2tog. I found it on the "Techknitter Blog" and as far as I know, the writer of the blog may be the inventor of the technique. Check out the blog on "slip, yank, twist, k2togtbl". I'll never use a SSK again.
